Collection GratefulDeadBand/Artist Grateful DeadVenue Red Rocks AmpitheatreLocation Morrison, COSource <b>flac16</b> ; Recorded By Mason Taylor on a Nakamichi 550 Cassette Deck, on chrome tapes; Senn 441's>Sony D5>Mason's Nak 550: Transferred on Mason's restored Nak550 properlyTaped by Mason B. Taylor
"Mason B. Taylor was a taper from Chicago that recorded concerts by many bands in the Chicagoland area and on Dead tours. He used a Nakamichi 550 with Nakamichi 300 mics with shotgun capsules for most of his earlier recordings. In later years he used Sony D-5 and Sony D-3 cassette recorders with Nakamichi 300 mics.
Mason captured spectacular musical moments and loved to share them with his closest friends. In honor of Mason and all the love he put into his recordings we are now able to share these moments with those who can appreciate them most.
As the shows get uploaded we would love for you to share your stories about the epic times the music evokes so we can all dial back into that moment when the magic was happening.
Thanks to Mason’s family and his Chicago and Cleveland friends for opening up Mason’s Jar…"
Note: OK, it's the rain day at Red Rocks so Mason patched into a 441>d5>to his 550 for the show..lots of talking girls, rain on the umbrellas, worries about mics coming down or not, and all that jazz, but as GD freaks, we sorta enjoy hearing all this stuff.
Far from perfect, but its what happened!

Thank You Mason & Family
Set 2 is a great ride, everyone is grooving with the same musical dynamics. The recording as said by previous reviewer gets better and does get there... simply put it is an outstanding presentation for the head and ears alike.
Peace and much groove.

This one gets better as show goes on. To me the sound starts to improve around Peggy-O, 2nd set is very good this night. An awesome AWESOME trppy set. The Playing in the Band show I have always called it. Wheel>Other One is off the charts. as if Phil wanted to knock off a few loose rocks. He takes the Other One to the point of no return.
Thank you to those who are posting these shows and to Mason for his hard work back then. I take he has passed on. If so you friends of his are doing him a great service carrying on his memory in these recordings.
Do you happen to have the Keil 8 4 1982 show a week later? Also would love to hear a good aud of fall tour Kansas city 8 17 1980? The first Wheel for Brent......
